Uploading files to my assistant that have URLs

Does anyone know if URLs in uploaded files can be read by my assistant? I 'm uploading files from the ‘Files’ section of the left column of the assistant’s playground, not the attachment section of the box used to prompt and test the assitant.

I’ve searched here and everywhere else and can’t seem to get an answer. When I test files it doesn’t appear to work but maybe I’m doing something incorrectly.



I assume you’re asking if the assistants can visit links found in a text document?

Assistants have no access to the internet, if this is something you need to add you will unfortunately need to figure out how to do it independently.

Thanks. Hopefully they’ll soon be like custom GPTs that can search the web too.
